Tottenham have been linked with a £15m move for Norwich youngster Max Aarons as Mauricio Pochettino reportedly eyes a long-term reinforcement.
Spurs are enjoying quite the campaign thus far, as their big win over Bournemouth on Wednesday lifted them up to second place in the Premier League table at the half-way stage.
They sit six points adrift of leaders Liverpool, and despite the lack of signings this past summer, Pochettino continues to work his magic and has put them in contention to compete for the title again this season it seems.
Nevertheless, that lack of strengthening the squad could perhaps come back to haunt them as the season goes on, and so Tottenham fans will surely be hoping that the club act moving forward and give the Argentine tactician the reinforcements needed to sustain their push.
According to The Sun, Spurs are being tipped to launch a £15m bid for Aarons in January, albeit it’s suggested that he could be loaned back to Norwich for the remainder of the season.
In turn, the 18-year-old may be seen as a long-term solution at right back rather than a signing to help Spurs on their quest for silverware in the more immediate future.
Nevertheless, there is no doubt that he has impressed up to this point, bagging three goals and three assists in 20 appearances to showcase his ability to make a decisive impact from an attacking perspective too.
Given Norwich are in second place in the Championship and chasing promotion, it’s no surprise that they will look to keep their squad in tact in January in order to give themselves the best possible chance of returning to the Premier League.
Time will tell though if Spurs can put a deal in place to snap up the talented teenager, with Pochettino seemingly set to have to rely on his current options to guide them towards trophies for this season at least.
